Instead of going with the standard third person deal, I'll tell you a bit about myself. I'm originally from Atlanta and am a die-hard Falcons fan. I also went to The Citadel for college and still currently live in Charleston. Here at Bleacher Report, I'm a Featured Columnist.
As a Featured Columnist, it's my job to cover the NFL, NFL Draft and Atlanta Falcons. I was also part of the Trends and Traffic team here at Bleacher Report. There I wrote about everything from Horse Racing to UFC to the NBA and even the English Premier League.
I've also completed the Bleacher Report University program and completed the Summer 2012 internship. It's an interesting experience in the Internship, but it's an awesome one and I'd recommend the internship to everyone.
I own the NFL Draft Website DraftFalcons and am the Editor-In-Chief there. I've been part of the Huddle Report's mock draft contest each of the past four years and have continually improved in the standings every year. I'm also the Host of the Kvetching Draftniks Radio Show with Alex Wiederspiel and Ethan Hammerman.

Scott, I've been reading your articles for about a year now, and I've enjoyed all of them! Great work and keep it up! I was just stopping by to ask you for a favor. On www.reddit.com/r/nfl, I am co-writing a top 10 receivers in the NFL list. We are making great progress, but, as you know, there are many great receivers in the league today. I was wondering if you could email or message me some ProFootballFocus gradings of the receivers in the NFL to help us narrow down our list. I don't have access to a PFF account, so I was hoping you could help me out. I will give you credit for helping, and will note that you are a B/R writer. I completely understand if you can't help me, but if you can, it would be greatly appreciated! Please continue writing great articles, and I hope you are not offended by what I am asking of you. Cheers!
Scott, your article on the Oakland Raiders state of affairs was the first real article written since Reggis McKenzie took over. I'm a die heart forty five year fan of the Raiders and nobody's been willing to tell the truth. When Hue Jackson was fired, he told the truth that the organization was going to have a fire sale and gut the place and that's exactly what's occurring it's just that Mark Davis & McKenzie pretended that they were not going to do that.
The Raiders are right now a " Virgin Franchise " that has no future yet because we are still purging wasted dollars and pretending to compete w/ short term signing of veteran players. There was zero reason to waste a year and a half w/ the facade of competing when everyone knew it was time to cut every single player. Right now the team is worse off then a new team that hadn't selected it's first player. Why not come clean, tell the truth and stop lying... the Raiders have been tied to so much bad money we can't even begin a new rebuilding process.
Lastly, the Raiders are by far the worst team in the entire National Football League by at least two to three years. We've had the worst draft picks of any team in the last decade and I silly can't take anymore incompetence.
As we sit quietly and watch McKenzie get rid of every single player on the roster, I'm waiting for the first (1st) real player he brings into the team for the future and it's not happened yet. How many years does a General Manager get to start a team? He certainly doesn't get ten (10) years. Is the draft of 2013 Al Davis's fault too? I've run out of patience w/ McKenzie & Allen taking zero responsibility for anything about the team and they need to provide LEADERSHIP now and that includes telling the truth.
Hey Scott, thanks for the comment. The disrespect I was calling attention to was the facebook post and the sharing of what Steven Jackson said. It could be seen as a slight towards Turner. The article the delved into the stats of if it was an upgrade because of Jackson's "They're one good running back away from winning the Super Bowl".
This part is also relevant to the headline:
"It's one thing for another player to say something about another one. They're athletes and they like to compete against each other and prove each other wrong. However, it is something completely different when the organization that you helped bring from the bottom of the division posts this on their Facebook page for over a million fans to see."
Thanks for the props last week, Scott. Must have slipped through the cracks.
For some reason I read your name as Scott "Carsick" :P
Hey Scott, I just remembered to get around to saying thank your for becoming a fan. I really enjoy your work, and as an aspiring writer, I like reading your articles to improve my work.
Advice Scott. Over the years 247 has statistically proven to be one of the more unreliable scouting sights. Mainly due to the fact that they average Scout into their ratings. (Scout has proven to be the most unreliable out of all the big recruiting sights).
I know I'm not a writer on here but if I was I would use ESPN or Rivals.
Just some helpful critizism. Good article by the way.
Fan Added you. Love your articles
Thanks Scott! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I loved writing it (yes, I'm a total dork).
Thanks for the props man, #Riseup!
